Police Chief Chuck Jordan released a statement Wednesday afternoon after two members of his force were arrested in connection to a fatal shooting.
The statement reads:
"Last night two Tulsa Police officers, Shannon Kepler and Gina Kepler, were arrested. Both have 24 years of experience with the Tulsa Police Department. This case, like all homicide investigations, leaves little information that can be released due to the ongoing investigation.
Shannon Kepler was booked into the Tulsa County jail for 1st Degree Murder and Shooting with Intent to Kill. Gina Kepler was booked for Accessory after the Fact.
I as well as the whole Department am saddened for both families involved in this tragic event. The circumstances around this incident drives home the fact that domestic violence is a societal problem and transcends all economic groups.
We as a department, honorably and objectively, continue to serve the citizens of Tulsa."
